My Kinda Christmas Decor
The Girls with Glasses teamed up with Rue magazine for a to-die-for Holiday spread called Jingle Girl Rock, shot at the Elvis Wedding Night Hideaway. Our tree has been up for a few nights now, and this was the perfect inspiration to get decorating! I lovelovelove the color scheme! The first of two videos below, done by Shark Pig, is an inspiration piece to go along with the shoot, but I may love the second video even more, which is a behind the scenes peek!

 My mom just gave me a small 4ft white tree that I'm going to decorate for our back family room! The shoot's styling was done by the two girls from Bash, Please, and with the color scheme, fawns, and 50's vibe, could not be more spot on! I love their blog!  

I am smitten with Feather Love's photography, & her blog is definitely worth a peek if you have any interest in photography. Her use of light, and the warmth it gives to her shots, is so inspiring to me. These are the elements I would love to bring to my own shots someday...  
Photography is definitely a focus for me for 2011. Goodness, that sounds crazy, "2011"! In the mean time, I going to watch the behind the scenes video, just one more time... okay, maybe, twice. ;)

NYC... a little peek.

Kermit, a Smurf and Snoopy, oh my...
My favorite windows were definitely Tiffany's... such great use of paper!
With great friends in Times Square, who cares about a little rain.
Rockefeller Center to really get us in the mood for the holidays...
And what's a trip without a mini curb side cupcake, the perfect black Friday pick me up!
But perhaps my favorite part of the trip (with the exception of seeing Molly Shannon, Sean Hayes and Kristen Chenoweth on Broadway, but I was promptly told, "Young lady, you are NOT allowed to take pictures in here!" At least she called me young... ;) was my shopping experience at the Impossible Project NYC, but more on that later! It did feel very odd to be away on Thanksgiving, and even stranger to have chips, salsa, and a quesadilla instead of the classic turkey dinner, but it was a great trip! Although I was ready to come home, I'm already planning my next adventure... I think it's some sort of disease.  We'll call it Wanderlust-itis.  It may just be an epidemic amongst me and my cronies...

Hugs, and hope you all had a wonderful, wonderful Thanksgiving.
